Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Comparing Bob and Jerry

I think of Bob's stuff as modular -- disparate pieces cobbled together, sometimes to good effect (PITB), sometimes not (Victim -- although I like it in its own weird wsy). Heavily arranged.

Garcia is all about the melody.

I think this was alluded to in one of Gans' books when they were talking about rehearsing new material. Jerry would introduce a new song by strumming the changes, and everyone would join in when they got it. By contrast, Bob would go over the different parts individually.
